A Greener World for the Greater Good.
What is sustainability? For us, it’s about achieving the proper balance between commercial resilience, social interest and environmental responsibility.
We have pursued a “greener for the greater good” philosophy for the last 30 years. Across the Group, our aim is to ensure at all times that our processes achieve the best possible environmental standards as we strive to work towards a Net Zero operation.
Our investment continues to this day with our new carbon action plan to be implemented 2022 onwards, which aims to further reduce environmental impact across all our operations. Where carbon reduction is not possible, we will consider optimal approaches to carbon offset.
Activities considered include improvements to woodland growth and preservation, growing seagrass and furnishing all premises wherever possible with energy-saving equipment such as photovoltaic panels.
An independent group-wide Carbon Audit is underway during 2022 to ensure we are taking the correct steps towards a Net Zero future within all our operations.
